Central Park is the the green sea of peace and tranquility in this great city that never sleeps to stop for sleep or rest. A great place for walks where you can concentrate on bird songs instead of sirens, listen to the crack of a bat on the ball fields, hear the clop clop of horse hooves as they pull their carriage riders through the green. Designed long ago by Fredrick Olmstead it was truly one of the greatest gifts of design every granted to a city. There is a little zoo, and carosel rides for kids, as well as several playgrounds, big empty green lawns for frisbee, picnics and empic concerts. lakes for canoeing and sidewalks for lovers and skateboarders too. I got married on the east side of the park nearly 30 years ago. It was nice to get back for a visit. I enjoyed a simple lunch on the park bench. Enjoying my apple and my New York hot dog. On that spring day I could almost hear those Gershin tunes singing in my head. "It's Wonderful"
